Licensing Information

Do I need a licence?

Keyman Desktop is available as a free 30-day trial. After 30 days, you must purchase a licence to continue using Keyman Desktop. See the End User Licence and Services Agreement for more information.

Where do I buy a licence?

Keyman Desktop can be purchased from the Keyman Desktop splash screen by clicking the Buy a License button. Keyman Desktop can also be purchased from Tavultesoft via the Tavultesoft Online Store or from registered Tavultesoft agents.

How much does a licence cost?

Current pricing can be obtained from the Tavultesoft Online Store.

How can I pay for a licence?

Available payment methods will differ depending on the seller you are purchasing from, but if you buy from Tavultesoft the recommended payment method is by credit card or PayPal. Other payment methods include Western Union, wire transfer, direct deposit and Australian dollar cheque/money order. For more information on these methods, please visit the Tavultesoft Online Store.

How do I use my licence?

When you purchase a licence to use Keyman Desktop, you can enter the licence into the trial version of Keyman Desktop. This will convert the trial version into the fully licensed version.

How many computers can I install my licence on?

The simple answer is that each licensed seat of Keyman Desktop is for a single computer. When you purchase Keyman Desktop, you will find a 'seat count' included in the licence details. A standard licence includes one seat, which should be used on one computer. If more than one person uses the same computer, you still only need a single licence - except in Citrix, Terminal Services, or similar environments.

The fuller answer is that Keyman Desktop licences are per concurrent-user seat (like MS Office). For systems running Citrix, Terminal Services, or similar software to enable concurrent use of Keyman by multiple users on the same computer, the number of licensed seats defines the maximum number of permitted concurrent users.

Can I move my licence to another computer?

You can move a licence to another computer, even after you have activated Keyman Desktop, by contacting Tavultesoft Support ( with your licence details and a note about moving the licence and the reason for the move (for example, purchasing a new computer, or replacing a computer that had a hardware failure). You must also uninstall Keyman Desktop from your original computer.
